Elyria Man Faces Bank Robbery And Firearms Charges

A federal grand jury returned a four-count indictment charging Jonathon E. Schubert, age 29, of Elyria, Ohio, with armed bank robbery and brandishing a firearm during the commission of a felony, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The indictment alleges that Jonathon E. Schubert robbed three different PNC Banks (in Sheffield Village, Cleveland, and North Olmsted, Ohio) on November 26, 2013, January 27, 2014, and March 10, 2014, stealing approximately $15,315.75 from the banks, and brandishing a firearm during the commission of the November 26,2013 robbery. 

If convicted, Schubert’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including Schubert’s prior criminal record, if any, his role in the offense and the unique characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Adam J. Hollingsworth following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government's burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt
